Summary

Millions of basketball players outside the United States dream of one day playing in the NBA. Thousands of those youngsters make their way onto the radars of NBA scouts patrolling the globe on the lookout for the next Drazen Petrovic, Arvydas Sabonis, Pau Gasol, Tony Parker, Dirk Nowitzki or Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Those talent observers criss-cross Europe and the rest of the world and watch prospects playing at both club and national team competitions - and that both at the youth and senior levels.
"Draft Dreams In The Making" is a compilation of articles written by David Hein about many of the international players who have shined at one or more of those competitions and have either declared themselves for the 2020 NBA Draft or are automatically eligible - those 1998-born players.
The articles in this book were published on the websites for the events where the players were competing - be it FIBA, Euroleague Basketball and Basketball Champions League events.
Not all international players who are in the 2020 draft pool are included in this book - solely those about whom an article was written.
Hopefuly you enjoy this book as much as the author did writing the articles in it.

    The Tour de France may provide the most obvious fame and glory, but it is cycling's one-day tests that the professional riders really prize. Toughest, longest and dirtiest of all are the so-called 'Monuments', the five legendary races that are the sport's equivalent of golf's majors or the grand slams in tennis. Milan–Sanremo, the Tour of Flanders, Paris­–Roubaix, Liège–Bastogne–Liège and the Tour of Lombardy date back more than a century, and each of them is an anomaly in modern-day sport, the cycling equivalent of the Monaco Grand Prix. 
      
     Time has changed them to a degree, but they remain as brutally testing as they ever have been. They provide the sport's outstanding one-day performers – the likes of Philippe Gilbert, Fabian Cancellara, Mark Cavendish, Tom Boonen, Peter Sagan and Thor Hushovd – with a chance to measure themselves against each other and their predecessors in the most challenging tests in world cycling. From the bone-shattering bowler-hat cobbles of the Paris–Roubaix to the insanely steep hellingen in the Tour of Flanders, each race is as unique as the riders who push themselves through extreme exhaustion to win them and enter their epic history. 
     
      Over the course of a century, only Rik Van Looy, Eddy Merckx and Roger De Vlaeminck have won all five races. Yet victory in a single edition of a Monument guarantees a rider lasting fame. For some, that one victory has even more cachet than success in a grand tour. Each of the Monuments has a fascinating history, featuring tales of the finest and largest characters in the sport. In The Monuments Peter Cossins tells the tumultuous history of these extraordinary races and the riders they have immortalised.
